You will need, from the CraftHouse press Men's, Transport and Sport CD rom, the Happy Woman decoupage sheet and Airmail background paper printed onto card and a piece of acetate.

From the Airmail background sheet cut out 2 pieces 4 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches. Then score lines at 1/2 inch then 1/4 inch fold up into a fan fold with the pattern on the outside, do the same with the other piece. Cut out the background of the decoupage.
Then cut out the other layers with as much spare area to the side as possible. OK now to put it all together.
Using PVA glue, the Imagination Crafts magi bond is great for this as it has such a thin nozzle and gives you a tiny line of glue, run a line of glue down the back of the last fold in you fan folded sided. Push the background into the fold so it meets the edge of the fold. Do the same on the other side.
Line up the next layer and run a line of glue down one side, stick the layer to the back of the next fold ( if there is not enough card to do that just cut a slither of white card and use it as a bridge from the image to the side )
Do the same on the other side and for the other 2 images.
Once they are all in place cut a piece of acetate to fit and glue to the back of the 1/2 inch front fold, add a 1/2 inch piece to the top and bottom of the background sheet to make the frame.
Cover the back with background paper to make it neat and tidy and add the title " A Happy Woman" to the top and you are done.
